(Chemical Equation Presented) Mannose 6-phosphate mimics locked into the α-configuration and bearing hydrolase-resistant phosphate surrogates were synthesized and evaluated for binding affinity to the mannose 6-phosphate/insulin-like growth factor II receptor (M6P/IGF2R). Affinity increases as the phosphate surrogate is varied in the order malonyl ether < malonate < phosphonate. An alkene cross-metathesis approach to sought-after bivalent M6P-bearing ligands is also described. These compounds were designed to map onto biantennary sectors of high-mannose-type oligosaccharides carried by glycoprotein M6P/IGF2R ligands.
